This wonderful traveling exhibition from the International Museums Institute vividly brings to life the enigmatic, opulent age of 18th Dynasty Egypt. Ten years in the making, from the artisans of the Pharaonic Village in Egypt and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, this dazzling collection of reproductions of Tutankhamun’s “wonderful things” recreates the richest archaeological find of all time.
Accompanied by a lively text, this educational installation featuring about 100 replicas of the pharaoh’s sacred and personal possessions along with associated artifacts from the period surrounding Tutankhamun’s reign reconstructs both the historic discovery of the tomb by Howard Carter and the life and times of Pharaoh Tutankhamun. The exhibition includes such spectacles as the golden Canopic Shrine, the pharaoh’s magnificent state chariot, the iconic golden mummy case, his throne, child’s chair, embalming couch, bed, jewelry, spectacular funerary mask, and the bejeweled royal mummy.
